Teams that could falter come tournament time
Duke- They’ve been phenomenal so far this season and have already won three games against top five opponents, but I’ve noticed something very disturbing about this team- they have no bench. Their starting line-up displays the perfect blend of youth and experience and has proven they can beat anyone, but as the year goes on players...
DURHAM, NC -- Mason Plumlee is having fun these days.
The 6-foot-10 Duke center has always enjoyed playing basketball, but his final season in college recently began, and the Blue Devils have easily collected the most impressive victories of the young season to date. And Plumlee is ecstatic.
In the last two weeks, Duke has beaten two No. 2 teams in Kentucky and Louisville on neutral...
Guard Seth Curry will miss No. 2 Duke's game against Delaware on Saturday with what the school says is an injured left ankle.
It's the first game Curry has missed since he became eligible after transferring from Liberty following the 2008-09 season, and he had played 78 straight games for the Blue Devils before this.

That’s not a knock on Curry, a...
In the midst of a November to remember I’m urging Duke Basketball fans to take a deep breath and use just a modicum of caution when it comes to assuming that the Blue Devils are the best team in the land.
Duke has proven to be a very good team early this season but that guarantees nothing long term.
As a Duke fan, it is easy to get wrapped up in the Blue Devils 7-0 start,...
Ryan Kelly scored 15 of his 18 points in the decisive first half and No. 2 Duke routed Delaware 88-50 on Saturday.
Mason Plumlee added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Blue Devils (8-0). They never trailed, shot 52 percent, led by 46 and enjoyed a rare breather after a challenging run of games against nationally ranked opponents.
Seth Curry, the other scholarship senior on the...

We are far away from March Madness, but the Duke Blue Devils are sure making their case as America’s most dominant team in college hoops these days.
